Hackensack NJ Bail Reduction Attorneys

Once a defendant is arrested they have a constitutional right to have a Judge set a bail. The underline purpose of setting a bail is to create a surety that the defendant will appear at trial. In essence, the defendant’s right to a bail means that barring exceptional circumstances (see below) the defendant has the constitutional right to have a Judge set a bail in an amount which does not exceed that which will insure defendant’s appearance at trial. Before a Judge can issue a bail on a defendant they must review what is referred to as the bail factors. In addition, the Judge must determine a defendants bail on case by case basis. With that being said, there are certain guidelines which a Judge must follow. Typically only the more serious charges like aggravated assault, assault by auto, robbery, burglary, unlawful possession of a weapon, heroin distribution, cocaine possession, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and theft by deception require the posting of a bail and are not simply released on their own recognize (“ROR”). If you feel that your loved one’s bail is egregious or it is simply to high for you to afford, you can file a bail reduction motion. The Law Offices of Jonathan F.
